  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

Is there anyone who can tell me who is responsible for the upkeep of Texas Road? I have been living here for over 5 years now and in that time there has been no improvements to that road. Digging deeper ditches to help water flow and shoddy patch work is not an improvement. The increase in the population in the area only adds to an increasing problem.  Now they did attempt to fix the road by repaving it, but if you haven’t driven down that part of the road you are really missing out, whoever they paid to do that work got over, they didn’t widening the road like it needs to be, the fail to roll the asphalt to pack it, which lead to gullies from vehicles travelling over it, so water will fill up in the road and I cannot understand why they do not divide the road with yellow lines.  Now I know there are people who have lived here longer than myself and have probably seen that road come from a dirt road to what it is now, but my concern is that we all pay our property taxes and personnel taxes every year, but to me we have nothing to show for it.  Please can someone give me an intelligent answer instead of “we don’t have the money”, because to that I say you are full of it and maybe you need to go to a budgeting class, because you had money to spend on that crap of job on Texas road, you just don’t have and standards.

I find it odd that they quickly filled the holes after the accident where a gentleman died going down the hill.  Guilty conscience? 

Pulaski county IS responsible.  Contact Eastern Commissioner (cant wait for ELECTION time).
St Robert's new side roads made water problem worse...pulaski county sewer district rapes us on rates and made it way worse when the hooked up to the lagoon.

The hill has always been bad...you cant put recycled road (which is what we have) on an unprepared surface (plain dirt road). 

Unfortunately it may be too expensive to fix the problem because it will come down to fixing the drainage issues and doing a real pave job.

Lame ducks in office...encourage neighbors to vote them out...its not against the law to make fliers.

My husband said the same thing about how quickly the road was patched after the wreck.  I didn't notice it but he did...and evidently others did as well. 
I have family that won't come to visit until the road gets fixed...don't expect to see them anytime soon.  All jobs that have been done are half way done...

I used to stop and fix the flowers and candels at that site but it has become much to dangerous now . I almost got hit last time. youd think the cross would be enough to slow people down. I dont wish harm on anyone but I wish someone would do enough damage to warrant law enforcement to combat the problem on our road with excessive speeders. I dont mean ten over. I mean double the speed limit or more. If I ever get JB at my house again Im gonna hog tie him and make him watch the 4 wheelers and the white jeep, and the black police chevy caprice police model, and the maroon Pt cruiser with the chic with dark glasses.  and many others . Ill untie him when he sees what we do. Kidding of course but it is a problem down here.

I just came in to work and I swear the truck that came by when I was getting out of my car was going 50 MPH or faster.  Big silver truck.  Coming toward SR from down at the bottom of the hill.  Yikes I mean this guy was flying.  I wish we could take license plates numbers and do like Barney Fife "CITIZEN'S ARREST, CITIZEN'S ARREST."  I loved that episode.
When I was young, I wanted to be older.  This is not what I expected!

Maybe we could set up camp in the church lot and make "Citizen's Arrest"!  LOL
I love all the Andy Griffith shows...the good ol' days!
The white jeep and the maroon PT Cruiser wouldn't stop anyway.  I always want to stop them and ask them how much taxes they pay...it must be more than us 'cause they take up all the road and drive like they own the road!
